2019-09-17Students' sharing at morning assembly – Peace and Kindness" by 6 Matthew Fan Lok Sum
Good morning, Sister Lucy, Principal, teachers and fellow schoolmates, I am Fan Lok Sum from 6 Matthew. Today, I am going to talk about the topic of "Peace and Kindness". Before I start my sharing, I would like all of you to think about what the meaning of these two words is.
From my perspective, peace is harmony and respect, while kindness can be interpreted as compassion and love. Both of them are indispensable in our daily lives, helping us to build a beautiful world.
Let me first share my thoughts on peace. I am sure that everyone always wishes that he or she could live in a utopia with no arguments between people. It's, however, certainly not true since unique moral values and pursuits are different. So, how we can discover peace in different areas? Peace is based on listening, communication and respect. Take my experience being the House Captain of St. Helen House last year as an example. Preparing for both the AGM and the Athletic Meets, I learnt to strike a balance by begin open to the different opinions of my partners, so as to accomplish the tasks in the best way. I am a leader, and that's what I do to maintain a harmonious relationship with other members.
And for another word, kindness, remember there's a stunning quote saying, "Kindness is choosing love over hate, light over darkness, compassion over judgement.”
When we realize the pressing issue of global warming and the tropical rainforests in Brazil, we all kindly show our care by donating money to the relevant NGOs in order to restore that enchanted nature, not only because of our empathy but also of our love and care.
Being kind simply means taking the very first step to build a peaceful relationship with someone we barely know, with our small acts, like a little smile or lending a helping hand, can gradually make a great difference to our society.
Last but not least, peace and kindness are the power of love. Only if we learn to embrace the diversity between us, we shall make our place a delightful one to live in.
2019-09-10Students' sharing at morning assembly - "How to study Mathematics" by 6 Mark Lee Tsun Siu
Good morning principal, teachers and schoolmates,
Today I want to bring you to a topic about “studying maths”. I had quite a tough time studying maths when I was in Form1. I was new to this place and everything was in English. I performed poorly in English so it was quite challenging for me to adapt to the totally new environment. What I was most worried about was my mathematics. It was totally different from what I learnt in primary school, in both language and topics. Fortunately, with the help provided by teachers, I got to understand how to study maths step by step.
For junior form students, it is very important to build solid foundation in both English and mathematics. Through daily communication and learning different vocabulary bit by bit, it is easier to learn and speak English. In mathematics in particular, some of the words are used repeatedly. These words should be memorized through your learning.
After completing this, you can move on to the next step, how to train your mathematics skills. In my opinion, learning the steps and memorizing the equation are both very important in studying mathematics. Completing the tasks provided by teachers is not enough. You might have forgotten what you learn today during the exam or tests. You don’t want to see it happen but it will if you are not paying enough attention to what you have learnt. For me, I recommend taking 10 to 15 minutes every day to revise what you have learnt and trying to complete some questions in your textbook. 10 to 15 minutes seems to be a slight change to your daily life, but it is going to make a big difference after a month.
Studying mathematics is not something easy. Everything you learn is going to be forgotten slowly. Daily exercises are important to not only mathematics, but every other subject. This is the end of my sharing. Thank you.
2019-09-13School Year Opening Ceremony & Our Lady of Sorrows’ Feast Day Mass The School Year Opening Ceremony was held on 13th September 2019. Our supervisor, Sr. Lucy, reminded us to learn kindness and respecting everybody from Blessed Mother. It is our honour to have Mr. Rex Cheng as our guest and present Rex Cheng Scholarship. That morning, every student was given a Mary Untier of Knots Prayer Card as a gift, hoping that we would find God and offer our heart to God in adversity.
After the ceremony, all teachers and Catholic students proceeded to St. Alfred’s Church for the Mass of Our Lady of Sorrows’ Feast Day with IHMS and IHMK teachers and pupils. The mass was celebrated by Rev. Carol Tei. He encouraged all of us to learn obedience from Blessed Mother so that we could be a blessing to others. The mass ended in Father Tei’s blessings and hymns of praise. 2019-08-24Orientation for F.1 Parents and Students 2019

2019-06-27Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) workshop The Chinese University of Hong Kong is in partnership with the Amgen Foundation to introduce an innovative science education programme – “Amgen Biotechnology Experience (ABE)” to Hong Kong secondary schools. It has been the first year that our school joined this program. 32 F.5 Biology students have joined the 2-day Biotech workshops at school laboratory supported by ABE. Students learned to reconstruct various kinds of DNA fragments, to amplify DNA and analyses DNA with different lengths and forms. They successfully transformed the Red Fluorescent Protein (RFP) gene into the Escherichia coli cells.
In the workshops, students learned the theories of the biotechnology that linked with the real-life scientific research. It provided different advanced biotech equipment for students to have hands-on molecular biology learning experience which enhanced their minds-on learning.
